Matchup: Pittsburgh Steelers versus Minnesota Vikings (in London)
Spread: Steelers -3
Public consensus pick: 52 percent picked Steelers
Public perception: This is a matchup of two 0-3 teams (maybe the NFL wanted to give England a game that more closely resembles a soccer score), and opened pick 'em. The public is more split on the current number of Steelers minus-3. The Vikings really let down bettors (both squares and sharps) last week in their loss to the Browns.
Wiseguys' view: Sharp bettors jumped on the Steelers early and pushed this line to a field goal, aided by Christian Ponder's absence (though an argument can be made that there's not much of a drop-off to Matt Cassel). They're not as likely to get involved now.
Tuley's Take: I understand the move on the Steelers, as they showed more of an offense in their 40-23 loss to the Bears than they had showed in their first two games. But I still wouldn't trust them laying any points. The Vikings -- well, that loss to the Browns said a lot.
The pick: Pass (pool play: Steelers)
